It’s basically Thanksgiving which means it’s Christmas season ho-ho-hos, so let’s give these beaties as presents to the world wrapped up neatly in our special Eat Your Beaties packaging. Celebrate the holidaze with a jazzy tune from poptart pete, some emotional emotions from LIL SAD, alien vibes from Bluestaeb, experimental goodness from Hominidæ and Tsaik and Majira and his waterfalls of piano-based prettiness. Unwrap ‘em after the jump.
For the first time in a while we’ve experienced a beaties surplus and actually had to make some cuts to distill our list down to our favorite beaties of the past two weeks. Needless to say these beaties are tight these beaties are tiiiiiiight. On this volume we got dom$olo with those good time vibes, Organ Donor with some DJ Shadow reverence, Noah B showing his respects for Larry Bird, Lee taking us down to the warmer side of the hemisphere with some reggae, AceMo doing his thing and as an added treat we got DJ Smokey with our favorite Halloween Trick or Beatie.
We’re back on schedule, basically. Despite the fact that my concussion guarantees that I will fall into a deep, dizzying depression every time I spend more than a few minutes staring at a computer screen I cannot give up the noble beaties cause. I will put my body on the line for you all. My head’s a ticking time bomb let’s git it. On this volume of Eat Your Beaties, Nicky Troubles brings the Young Ho vibes, AceMo takes us to emotional catharsis, Woosley Cone gets on all floors, Ahnnu does Ahnnu better than anyone else can do Ahnnu and Ethernt get’s us tippin. Hit that jump, don’t be scared.
Like your social life (that you secretly wish wasn’t impeded by your refusal to listen to anything that has graced the top 100), Eat Your Beaties is back from the deepest depths of midterm week. To be honest we just didn’t wanna see this thing turn 30, hairlines may go up but everything is down from here isn’t it (damn)(sadboyz). Because EYB has been MIA like a paper plane (I’M FUCKING KILLING IT WITH THIS POST) for a while now, we’re gonna hit you up with a few more than usual. Because you’re worth it. In this volume we have Memory Cards bringing us back to the days of the ps2, triangle regime flipping some horns, Jung Jill chilling out like it’s the summer of 2009, Leah Axel partying it up like a sad hipster who doesn’t like dancing but is really good at it anyway, Color Plus bringing in some heat for the ladies, Plue Starfox doing something cool and Yung Gutted with a reminder that it’s halloween season, bitch.
I know we’re really late on Beaties this time but I don’t really have a good excuse to give you so sorry. This time around we have lush and organic-sounding track from Ale$, a swing-heavy funk influenced beat from J. V!bes, a chopped up sound collage from Spectre Waltz, a pleasantly nostalgic dance track from Testudo and Slam Skillet, a delicately distorted experimental track from little cloud, and last but certainly not least; an official Up-Turn-certified trap banger from D.J. Detweiler.
With the end of summer and having to move back into school, beaties are the perfect bite-sized pieces of music to listen to when I have a few minutes. Collected over a few very quick and rushed messages between Terence and I, this beaties volume includes some jazzy swagger from KVZE, gucci trap from DJ Smokey (one of our new favorite beaties senseis), gorgeous loops from Cosmicatt, a Snoop and Dre flip from Psittacines and a crazed, WOAH OMG WTF inducing track from Loec. Eat them up.
